Cagney and Bogart, two very well-dressed but ruthless, gangsters 🙂

Learn your lines, plant your feet, look the other actor in the eye, say the words, mean them. — James Cagney

Cagney and Bogart — two of the toughest ‘tough guys’ to ever grace the Silver Screen — both who helped define the gangster genre, and both who were able to break free from that typecasting — each, incidentally, winning an Academy Award for playing a good guy.

James Cagney and Humphrey Bogart starred in THREE films together:

  1. Angels With Dirty Faces (1938), directed by Michael Curtiz
  2. The Oklahoma Kid (1939), directed by Lloyd Bacon, on DVD, Blu-Ray and Prime Video
  3. The Roaring Twenties (1939), directed by Raoul Walsh, on DVD and Prime Video

My Favorite? Don’t kill me, but for me, it’s The Roaring Twenties, hands down. Bogie is just soooo ‘bad’ in this film — he’s so much ‘badder’ than ‘bad guy’ Cagney, that I always find myself rooting for Cagney and hoping that everything will turn out swell for him. Spoiler alert, it doesn’t.
